Author Nick Hornby wasn’t lying when he said “The Replacements were superheroes: They rescued a whole planet from ’80s music.” That’s how many felt after the band launched in 1979 and progressed through the next decade, often tripping over themselves despite critical acclaim. Drugs, disorderly conduct, crappy gigs, major label success–they’ve been through it all.

Josh Neas of Aquarium Drunkard sits down with host Courtney Smith in this Uncensored Discussion to give you the scoop on the influential band that for many saved the decade.

  1. Uhhh – Concrete Blonde and Cowboy Mouth essentially the same band? What Cowboy Mouth are they talking about?

    Also re: reunion bands that ROCK – check out X! They only get better and better every time I see them.

  2. I’m pretty sure that by the time it came to record the Tim songs, Bob was not that reliable at showing up to the studio, so Westerberg wound up playing most of the guitars on Tim.
